Alphonse Mucha's "Winter"

Nationality: Czech
Born-Died: 1860-1939

Creation Date: 1896
Media: *
Location: Private Collection

* On Wikimedia (the source of this image) the medium is listed as "Oil on panel" which doesn't seem right at all to me.  I was always under the impression that this was a lithograph.  When I saw a similar Mucha poster in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, it was definitely a print of some kind and I suspect this is a print as well.

  1. I believe this is known as a Panneaux decoratif, an innovation of Mucha's, which is a lithograph printed on heavy paper or silk.
